Today is Monday the 19th of May, in the Fifth week of Easter.

The monks of the Abbey of Keur Moussa sing: ‘Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.’ As they sing…. I listen.  I listen with my whole attention, with my mind and with my heart, so that I may really hear the word of God, and keep it.

Today’s reading is from the Gospel of John.

Jesus continues to teach me about God’s love for me and the world. What are my experiences of God’s love for me?

How have I experienced God’s love?

Now turn this around, how have you experienced loving God? How do you love God?

As you hear the reading again, what do you notice about what Jesus says about the Holy Spirit..?

You might today, thank God for the love He has shown you and in fact all people. Perhaps we can ask together for God to renew His love in us all again.
